A HOST of primary school kids from across the South Lakeland area took part in the district cross country trials which were hosted by Sedbergh Prep School this week.

And in good conditions, it proved to be a hugely enjoyable and competitive event which was watched by a healthy and enthusiastic crowd of spectators.

A total of 540 pupils from 32 schools competed with the top 16 from each race going through to the Cumbria Schools cross country event which will be held at Hunter Hall School in Penrith on 12 February.
